Sarah Moon first captured the world’s attention as a stunning, young fashion model in Paris in the free-wheeling 1960s. She also greatly enjoyed photographing her friends in the fashion world during their free time.
In 1970 she earnestly began to pursue a career as a photographer. She quickly met with professional success, and became well-known and respected for her unique vision and the signature style of her photography.
The images she created were soft, romantic, melancholy, outside of time, more dream-like fantasy than anything real — and composed with an eye for shape, and strong graphic recognition.
Moon created the advertising "look" for the French fashion houses Chanel, Cacharel, and Comme des Garçons; and she was sought after by other designers around the world.
Moon’s career took off with her fashion images, but she always pursued her own personal, non-commercial work. Her fine-art photography and film-making have become her primary focus today.

Months after the summer conflict between Hamas and Israel, Q. Sakamaki created these hard-hitting portraits of Gaza Strip residents posing in front of their bombed out homes. Affecting work, with a powerful presentation and text.
Sensual and surreal, this photobook is filled with landscapes and portraits that are inspired by those beautiful yet uncomfortable moments that hold contradictions—this is rich, revealing work.
